Abstract

at beach at the beach Michael Downs I. Dog and Not Dog fiction Rosa's cat was short haired, black and white, with half its left ear torn away and a tail that twitched when the cat meant to do evil. If Rosa failed to notice the tail, the cat might rake claws across her hand as she petted him. She fancied herself a cat lover, but this animal led her to thoughts of betrayal. She enjoyed the fruits of her thirty-three years: friendships, loving parents, success in property law and an expensive condominium in a city that valued its magnolias and crepe myrtle. People who knew her saw a woman confident in herself and her powers. She dated, but unmarried men her age proved immature or too damaged to warrant anything more than sex. One year, in June, she left to spend a week at the beach with a KKG sister and the woman's family. is was an annual retreat, a chance for sun and talk with a friend she saw too rarely.
